    As you can see, I'm new to this whole thing. Just having some fun revisiting the old games in anticipation for New Vegas.

    Anyway, I killed off T-Ray forgetting that he was essential to car upgrades. Reverting to a previous save is not an option at this point.

    I've been checking out F2se and it *seems* like it should be possible to respawn him and his gang, or ideally reset the entire stolen car encounter along with them, but I'll be damned if I can figure out how to do it.

    Basically, I'd like to clear the Chop Shop off my map and do the whole thing over again. Is this reasonably possible to do without interfering with the rest of the game?

    Edit: I know that I could use the editor to simply upgrade the car, but I'd much rather not.

    Thanks in advance for your help and expertise!

    You can copy NEWRCS.sav from other save where T-Ray is alive. Or in F2se delete NEWRCS.sav from list of *.sav files. This will return map to its original state next time when you visit it. (When you delete maps from list, you must be in some other location or save will be damaged)
    However this will not reset the entire stolen car encounter, full reset may require modification of global and local variables.

    Thanks for your help. So I've got the Chop Shop back to defaults. Certainly good progress...

    Unfortunately they attack me on sight. Could it be because I attacked them before, because I'm a Made Man with Salvatore, or because Bishop is dead? Maybe a Jules variable?

    I've tried tinkering with 348:GVAR_NEW_RENO_STOLEN_CAR, but it seems there's at least one other thing causing them to be hostile. Also, even after deleting the .SAV the Chop Shop remains accessible on my local map.

    Code:
    Also, even after deleting the .SAV the Chop Shop remains accessible on my local map.
    It should the sav files contain the data of the map only the know places are stored elsewhere.

    About the attack on sight it could be another global variable too. I don't remember that being a made man of other families would make them attack.

    Anyone else have any ideas? It's driving me nuts. I've rar'd the savefile if anyone proficient at this can figure out a solution.

    Ideally, I'd like to reset the whole stolen car event. More reasonably, I'd like at least for T-Ray to be willing to upgrade my car.

    I can't find a T-Ray GVAR, but perhaps it's a Jules thing? I'm at a loss.

    T-Ray’s upgrades aren’t critical…neither is the storyline attached to the Chop shop, so I wouldn’t stress over it…of course you could always reload the game before you enter New Reno…you did save that game… didn't you. :roll:

    OK, that was the wrong save. But anywho, if gvar_694 is set to 4 you need to change it to 0.

    Also, how can you play the game unpatched? I mean not even the official one? :crazy:

    Hm. Apparently that was indeed the wrong save *shrug*. Anyway, I currently am playing with the killap patch (not resto), I must have rar'd an older folder.

    That said, that variable worked (sort of). They're no longer hostile, but T-Ray still has nothing to say to me. His dialogue consists of:

    "Who're you? What are you doing here?"

    and my only reply is:

    "Nothing, I'm going now."

    Speaking to him again gets me nowhere. I'm pretty sure that's why I killed him in the first place. I dunno what the trigger is to get him to upgrade the car.

    I think I got it! Followed all the above advice and changed GVAR 348 to 1. Gonna give this a whirl to make sure, but it seems to have done the trick...

    Thanks everyone!
